Checking In ...

It's been a long time since my last post.
Things have been a little busy in our neck of the woods. I have one week left of work, and at about 36 weeks pregnant here I'm getting tired!
It's funny wrapping stuff up at work. It's hard figuring out which files to keep, pass to others, etc. And, I still need to write some sort of e-mail to everyone explaining who to contact for various things. I was working on the wording of my e-mail last week and I was laughing when I realized that I have worked on enough projects over the last couple of years (the last year in particular) that I'm referring people all over the place - from my department to lawyers, etc.
Hopefully it will all sort itself out.
And, of course I argued to keep my blackberry on mat leave. There are valid reasons for this, but I do believe it is entirely possible to go into blackberry withdrawal! And I will want to keep up.
Otherwise, things are going well with my pregnancy. Of course I'm hitting the point of being of uncomfortable. But, that's pretty typical. I'll be glad to have a couple weeks off to prepare for the baby, and you know, nap! As much as I want this baby to come early I also wouldn't mind a few days to finish getting ready.
Speaking of getting ready ... we're getting there. Last weekend we bought a ton of stuff in Buffalo (no, not a car seat or crib, don't worry) and then this week I had a shower held by my friends at work, and also a lunch out with a lovely gift from the people I work with. I was really pleasantly surprised and touched.
We're now trying to get our house in order, buy the stuff for my hospital bag (this snow is not helping me!!!) and chill till the big day arrives. That would be 19 days or less. Woo Hoo!
I know I've had my blog locked for awhile. I'm thinking of unlocking it (or taking off the password protection) for a few weeks once the baby is born so that I can post pictures and updates.
I've been playing around a bit with the template to take off some stuff that was bugging me (like the facebook link) so I'm not quite as worried. And, thanks to the fact that one of our work intranet designers showed me a little bit about understanding html coding I figured that all out on my own!
I think that's it for now.
